JGarden Description:Rinnoji is a Tendai temple. It's garden was is thought to have been built around 1648. It is a relatively large garden with a view of Mt. Nantai and an east-west oriented pond surrounded by a path. Some of the garden has been altered ove the years, but much of the original remains including rock formation on the island and a treasured five-tiered stone lantern. 




The spring rain
Which hangs to the branches
Of the green willow
Looks like pearls
Threaded on a string.
